No Call. Not Yet :(

What a lovely way to spend a bit of Saturday morning: at a quilt show at the Chicago Botanic Garden! Though I took a lot of pictures, the most notable picture is of the quilt below:

With a close-up view of the applique detail here:

This was the raffle quilt made by members of the IQI (Illinois Quilters Inc.) Guild
that I bought many raffle tickets to win...I am anxiously awaiting the phone call telling me I won, but it hasn't happened. Not yet!
I'd really, really like to win this quilt.
In the meantime, I'd like to show you some of my favorite pieces from the show. The one, above,
was made from the contents of a junk drawer and knitted. Read about the artist below.
Unfortunately, I don't think I can purchase this quilt at that price.
Or the next one, either. Here is a close-up of it.
See the candy wrappers?
This quilter must have some stash of candy wrappers behind her couch!
I loved reading about the story behind the making of this quilt. She was very clever to use
her own Girl Scout uniform, badges and sash in its construction.
I loved the name she chose for this quilt.
Once again, I am so impressed by the creativity of quilters. Well done, IQI gals!
Please, please, please call me soon...I'm right next to my phone and I promise to take very, very good care of the quilt you painstakingly created.
